Is that the Roadrunner?
2 September 2013 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

There's not much story to this very early black-and-white cartoon. It's just more of an animation showcase featuring birds going about their business - singing, preening, paddling etc.

One of the baby ducks even says "meep meep", long before Warner created the famous Roadrunner. A hawk (or vulture or something) swoops down to steal a chick for dinner, but as usual cartoons never portray the bloody carnage of real life so the bird eventually flies off with an empty tummy.

The sound design and music give the short a little extra dimension, though other than that it is way to primitive to have any sort of lasting appeal.
